Tiger packing two putters at US Open

Tiger Woods explained he has two putters - one for practice, one to game - as he looks to improve on his flat stick performance at the 2018 US Open.

Tiger uses a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter.

“When I'm at home, I have a couple practice putters that I have, and I've always been one that likes the heel-shafted putter. I like feeling the toe move. I love feeling the release of it,” he explained on Tuesday. “What I've done over basically my entire career is putt with those putters at home a lot. And then I like to feel that in my fingers when I grab my other putter, the one you see me putt with for most of those years, and have that same swing.”

The 14-time major champion struggled on the greens at Memorial, where he came T26.

“What I did at Memorial, I just didn't feel comfortable over it,” he said. “I couldn't see my lines. And those greens were quick, and I just didn't feel comfortable and didn't hit many good putts. I hit a lot of bad ones.”
